    My problem is identical- I have reset the modem several times, but no joy.

    I know the line is OK because I have swapped by to my old BT voyager modem and everthing is fine with that.

  • fireproof99 Jan 08, 2009

    Same problem! The internet light flashes amber. I talked to Belking for ages and they just said phone the ISP (Sky) who said they can only offer support on their products - the line is fine because the old router still works

Hi,
Reset it by putting something sharp like a paper clip into the Reset hole on the back and hold for 15 seconds. Now wait for all the lights to stop flashing and remain on. You should be able to connect now, if not, then change the microfilter or call your ISP and ask them to test the line.

Hope this helps

If you don't have a PPoE password from your ISP, then just connect the ISP modem to the main port on the router. Then connect a PC with a network cable. This should work, if not try connecting the modem directly to the PC to test.
If you get internet with just the modem, then try resetting the router.

And orange bliking light came on what does it mean


If your belkin wireless router is flashing orange, it more than likely means it was hit by a power surge or got wet and popped the circuit on the mother board of the router. Took mine apart and found where the circuit had been blackened by power surge hitting it. I was able to salvage one important thing was the antenna that can be adapted to other systems if you know what your doing.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
